Some dishes that you eat while traveling are good, but they take you out of your comfort zone.  The taste or the texture is unfamiliar, and you need to eat a few bites to even decide what you think of it.

On the other hand, there are dishes like the grilled pork rice at Yongle Shao Rou Fan.  It doesn’t ask anything of you but to enjoy it.

Ah Tang is famous for something called milkfish porridge, which is essentially a very ricey soup with a whole bunch of fish chunks in it, traditionally eaten for breakfast.

I was a little concerned about having something so fishy first thing in the morning, but of course, I shouldn’t have been.  When it comes to food, Taiwan knows where it’s at.  They won’t steer you wrong.
